PhotoStory Friday~Winter in Texas

Here in South Texas we generally experience pretty mild winters compared to folks farther north, but let me tell you, after days and days of 100 plus temperatures all summer long it doesn't take much of a drop in the temps to make us whine! When I say "I'm freezing" friends and family up north say things like "what did it drop to 50???" They laugh because while we sit in the 30's they are in the single digits, some dealing with snow, and some even having ice on the INSIDES of the windows of their houses. I've been THAT cold, and there is a REASON I moved to Texas. Some days I might miss playing in the snow, but I don't ever want to be THAT cold again! So yes, I will continue to whine and complain when it drops below 70 here (hey, what can I say?! I'm a fair weather kind of gal!)

With that said, it may come as a shock to you (it came as a shock even to me!), that when it SNOWED here last week I was excited! Yes! Excited! I even went outside to watch it fall, and even went out to take some pictures of it. Granted it was very hard to even see the flakes fall, and granted none ever even came close to covering the ground, but when it's been almost 10 years since I've played in the snow, the possibility of it was indeed exciting!

Look closely! There really are snowflakes falling from the sky!

Look even closer, there really are some snowflakes on the ground. Hurry, they won't last long and they'll melt away!

And the best thing about winter....I get to dig out all my cute boots and sweaters! It won't be long and spring will be here so even though many days are still 50 degrees, I'm wearing the furry boots anyway!

I heard from a few of my friends in Texas about snow recently. Pretty crazy because at that point here where I am in PA we still hadn't had any snow. Enjoy your Taxas winter. :)

we had our first winter snow this week too--only ours stuck and it's only about 5* out there. I wear my sweaters and furries in the house! If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

I remember feeling that way when it snowed in Vegas in 98. I took the kids outside to experience their first snow. Now we live in Eastern MT and get WAY too cold and plenty of the white stuff!
